I have posted a few images from this trip to Afghanistan, but just the other day I was thinking about a lot of the really impacting moments I have had through my travels. Each trip is focused on a story, and each story is interesting and intriguing in its own way. But seeing people receive basic health needs that we take for granted, is a really moving experience. Today, many Afghans are able to see because of this non-profit providing such amazing care and treatment for their people.

Molly and Steve . Queen of All Saints

Molly and Steve were such wonderful people to work with. They are such a gracious couple, and I really felt like through the last few months I made some new friends. Steve even gave me a clipping of his Kombucha Scoby when I delivered the proofs! Thanks Molly and Steve for choosing “rojo”. All the best to you guys!

Even thought it was early November, with the strange Chicago weather this fall/winter, these guys had a beautiful day for a wedding! I know that I have posted way too many photos, but bear with me. I had to show off these florals from Forget Me Knodt! These were so beautiful, and with each bouquets containing a number of fresh herbs,  I thought I would end up eating one of them before the day was over! (On a side note, if you are looking for a florist, look no further!) I also loved how Steve’s love for brewing his own beer was shown with hops added to his (and each groomsmen’s) boutonniere. You can also see his favorite selection of beer for the reception! So enjoy the extended preview of Molly and Steve’s amazing wedding day.
